here to announce the closure of guantanamo. four years ago when president obama can into office and issued the executive order that we all remember promising to close guantanamo, that was absolutely the right thing to do. since then, the prisoners at guantanamo have sadly been filled by the obama administration and the united states congress and the courts and the majority of the mainstream media and by the american people. that is sadly the truth. when you look at what that means -- what is it mean for the people in guantanamo? the most important fact that we need to be aware of on this day is that have of the prisoners in guantanamo have been cleared for release from that prison by a very sober and responsible group of government officials and lawyers and all the government departments and intelligence agencies in a report that was issued three years ago. as moe put it, these are not people who needed to be held because they pose a security risk or because they have ongoing intelligence on the united states and yet they have not been released. united states went to a very high

.s. military, how is the obama administration in this coming up four years going to go after this new al qaeda refuge? these are very remote areas. the u.s. military has very few forces in the region and, look, they are going to need permission of countries to go in there if they are going to go into these places. algeria has made it clear it doesn't want help. and libya is it a country that basically has no coherent national military force, a lot of militias running many parts of libya. so to go after al qaeda, it's a nice set of words but a promise that may be very hard to live up to, wolf. >> certainly will be, barbara. thank you. >>> an american worker at the algerian gas facility tells cnn he escaped on the first day of the siege by islamic terrorists. mark cobb, believed to be a resident of texas, told cnn in a message that he's safe after escaping with some algerian staffers. according to his linkedin pain, he's manager of a joint venture in algeria. >>> other news right now, it was a blunt and chilling confession to the world. lance armstrong admitting unequivocally to oprah winfrey th

of the election is that the republican effort to oppose anything and everything proposed by obama, almost like a parliamentary party was not rewarded. taking the debt ceiling hostage was rewarded. calling the obama health care plan which was there room only a few years earlier socialism was not rewarded. that means, they have to begin to rethink themselves. importantly, democrats will not automatically embrace the same tactics in the opposition. i think that was an important change that creates a
] fight 7 signs of aging flawlessly. cc what's possible. >>> four years ago president obama said -- >> on this day we gather because we've chosen hope over fear. unity of purpose over conflict and discord. on the day, we come to proclaim an end to the petty grievances and false promises the recriminations and worn-out dogmas that for far too long have strangled our politics. >> and any notion that an obama administration would bring about an end to dogma or discord quickly evaporated during the first of the presidency and seemed positively quaint after republicans resumed control of the house. the lessons learned by the administration in the first four years have made the president a very different leader. far less conciliatory in to be and arguably in substance. in the central message of 2008 to change the way the ligs does. he characterized the messy political process as something not to overcome, but rather to embrace. >> democracy in a nation of 300 million can be noisy and messy and complicated. we have our own opinions. each of us has deeply-held beliefs. and when we go thr
. >> didn't we do this for the last two years? the election is over. the whole barack obama is part of this elitists is a dead argument. it doesn't move things forward. what the nra should be talking about is let's make sure people have to be licensed properly to have their guns. make sure people know how to use a gun if someone comes into their home. these ads and attacks raises money, gets people talking, and it doesn't help the nra's reputation with the public. >> ron, jason has a point. this could create a backlash. a "washington post" poll shows 44% have an unfavorable view of the nra's leadership. >> i don't think that matters to the nra. what their goal is is to protect gun rights, the rights of the second amendment. they're going to do everything possible to make sure that happens. you know, you have republicans and democrats joining together. that will end up joining together to fight president obama's proposals. you have red state senators in the senate, harry reid extremely cool to this proposal as well as pat leahy, a democrat who will take his time and look this over. i

reasons. but it's interesting to note in the last 90 years, out of the 11 times that the budget from the president has been late, four of those 11 have been under the obama administration. we're also informed that there is a chance once again, like there was a year and a half ago, that our credit rating of the u.s. could be lowered again. by another credit rating agency. some have tried to paint it as a different story, different picture, but for those of us who recall what happened, s&p made it clear that they didn't believe that the united states was serious about dealing with this dramatic spending problem, overspending problem. where we were spending $1.5 billion, $1.6 trillion, over $1 trillion more than the $2-plus trillion that we had coming in. and that if we didn't at least reduce the massive overspending annually by at least $400,000 -- $400 billion, rather, for 10 years, a total of $4 trillion over a 10-year period, then it would make it pretty clear that we were not serious about dealing with our debt. i know the obama administration went on the warpath after s&p, after t
are killed with guns. president obama will take the oath of office, and during those 0our years, some 4800 americans will be killed with guns. twice as many people as were killed in combat in the vietnam war. i have made it clear our has threesan coalition requiring legislation and four calling for executive action and i hope they will support all seven. first and most urgently -- we need the presidenet and congress congress to require background checks at gun sales and online. private sales account for 40% of gun sales nationally. there were more than 6 million gun sales that happened with no background checks. many of these are handguns, used in 90% of all firearms murders. across the united states, 80% or ofgun owners and 90% americans require gubackground checks for gun sales. we have laws on the books requiring background checks when dealers sell guns. it is time for the president and congress to make this the law of the land. 40% that the law does not apply to is a sham. and congress should make gun trafficking a federal crime. 80% of the guns we find at crime scenes are from out of
, every single day across our country. every day of the year, an average of 33 americans are murdered with guns. here is another way to think about what that means. one week from today, president obama will take the oath of office for his second term. unless we take action, during those four years, some 48,000 americans will be killed with guns. nearly twice as many people as were killed in combat during the entire vietnam war. when i have talked with the vice president, i have made it very clear that our bipartisan coalition of mayors is supporting seven measures. three that need legislation and for that require only executive action. we are hopeful the president and vice president will support all seven. i just wanted to touch on each of them briefly. first, most urgently, we need the president and congress together to require background checks for all gun sales, including private sales at gun shows and online. private sales now account for more than 40% of all gun sales nationally. which means that in 2012 alone, there were more than 6 million gun sales that happened with no projec
because he's not going to do that. asking barack obama to not be a big spending high taxing liberal liberal, this is what we'll do we'll pass a year-long continuing resolution or national security, we'll pass a very short term continuing resolution for the department of labor, the department of housing and urban development, the department of the interior. there are dozens of places you can dramatically change spending without having to get involved in general crisis over the u.s. debt. >> mr. speaker i want to get your take on gun control, because as you know vice president biden is going to be delivering some 19 different recommendations to the president. also there is some controversy over the fact that the nra released a new itunes app that offers shooting practice and can be for children ages 4 years old plus. what do you think about that? >> we're having the discussions about gun control, over 500 people were killed in chicago last year the president's hometown. vice president biden doesn't want to go there, i'm trying to get the house to hold hearings
president in history. of course, he did almost nothing in the way of gun-control in his first four years. in back, the brady campaign gave him an f assessment of his record. so what did the nra do into dozens of? the capacity you know, we were wrong about obama. he is not really our guide. he is pro not the one to do very much to infringe on gun rights. well, they went back and said exactly the date -- the same things in 2012 that they said in 2008. i am afraid the nra is mostly interested in whipping up hysteria to raise money for itself and to perpetuate itself rather than to do anything particularly productive. >> soap responsible members of the nra, wonder if they will raise their hand and say wait a minute. >> i wouldn't hold my breath on that. >> how much do you think the nra is promoting the interest of gun manufacturers and gun sellers? >> i don't know where they get their funding. obviously they get some from the gun industry. you can make a sort of case that the sort of tactics they used are helpful to get sales. you have a big surge in debt sales after obama was reelected. the
